What I meant was that the PCI config space would already have L1
enabled if L1 worked, so I don't see why we would need to nitpick out
specifics here. All Atheros PCIE chips should work with L1. The advise
given is to disable L0s though. I believe AR2425 would be one which
likely had L0s enabled but requires it to be disabled. Not sure of
others. But this is why I am saying this can be done globally for all
ath5k chipsets.
